Instagram is testing a new design for viewing stories on desktop. In the new look, Instagram Stories are expected to appear in a carousel, instead of the current single-tile format that takes up the entire page. A company spokesperson confirmed to a publication that testing of the new feature is indeed underway. The report suggests that navigation will remain the same – users will have to manually click through the Stories or can choose to let them play one after the other automatically. It is not clear yet if and when the new design will be rolling out to more users.
As per a report by Engadget, an Instagram spokesperson confirmed that a new design for Stories is being tested. The new look had been appearing to a “small group” of Instagram users last month onwards, as per the spokesperson. Gadgets 360 has reached out to Instagram to seek further
